workaround for "console is not shared" netra x1 lom error message


Ah, back to my "thank you for the informative error messages" postings. On a netra X1 box you may possibly get an error message such as
lom>console
Console is not shared
which is not very helpful. Of course one would think that console -f would override this, but nope, it doesn't. So the work around, which will force a reboot of your machine is the following.
lom>bootmode reset_nvram
lom>reset
lom>
LOM event: +128d+1h34m23s host reset
lom>console

oaf108 console login:
and thats it. You can also connect directly to the serial port and reset your eeprom settings there as well.
